I’ve been studying in Psalm 61 this week. It is one of David’s prayers, and it provides a very important key to his relationship with God.
• lead me to the rock that is higher than I
• my refuge
• a strong tower against the foe
• to dwell in your tent forever
• shelter of your wings
• enthroned in God’s presence forever
When we pray, we tend to ask for things. They can be good and vital (God, deliver us from this pandemic!), but they should not be our only prayers.
We can learn much from David, whom God called the apple of His eye, and we can learn much from this prayer. There was one thing David wanted above all else.
Essentially, he was asking, “God, keep me close to you.”
My God, I want that too!
